blogging bio

The one and only Soccer Dad has challenged his fellow bloggers to reminisce about our blogging history.

A few years ago, after some local youths were murdered in a series of terrorist attacks, I wrote a few lines about my feelings and sent them out to friends. At the end of this, you'll find the very first one.

It was a very hard year for us, and there were more Arab terror attacks and more murder. Periodically I wrote what I called my "musings" and sent them out. The mailing list grew, and people would tell me I ought to have a site for them. Then various friends suggested blogs, so my husband and I began to look into it, and we started our blogging careers.

The first one I was Shiloh Musings , and at first I only posted that specific genre; later on I relaxed the format into what you find there today. Afterwards I started me-ander and the muse's pics and Blog Free! . It's hard to imagine life without blogging.

Soccer Dad introduced me to carnivals via Havel Havelim. And of course I began my own Kosher Cooking Carnival, hint, hint, send a link!

I love your blog! Thanks for letting me have a peek into your life. You live so far away, but your life is still strangely similar to my own.

Thanks, Wendy. It's a good feeling to know that we really do have so much in common.
